Spot the Celebrities in PETA’s Banned Airport Ad

Published by PETA.

My mom, my sister, and I always used to play “spot the celebrity” in airports. Not real celebrities, necessarily—just people who look like the rich and famous. So, for me, it’s only fitting that PETA’s new public service announcement—which we had hoped to run in New York City airports during fashion week but was rejected by the CNN Airport Network—is full of real celebrities to spot:



Just in case you need some help, we’ll give you a few hints:

  1. This person has been called PETA’s “weapon of mass distraction” by her pal, PETA V.P. Dan Mathews.
  2. This person’s “Ink, Not Mink” ad showed us all that he has “Your Name” tattooed on his butt.
  3. This musician was one of the first celebrities to get involved with PETA, with her 1987 hit record Don’t Kill the Animals.
  4. This celebrated writer and comedian firmly established her niche when she recorded a vegetarian testimonial about being Jewish, lesbian, and vegan.
  5. This comedian just went viral as a “fried” Ronald McDonald.

So, can you spot all the celebrities?
